I was going to call this post “sedagive” but not enough people (i.e., those who’ve never seen Young Frankenstein) would get it. I’m simply mentioning that I’ve fallen into the habit of watching this 25-minute chapter from Smiley’s People before going to bed. I love the soothing, settled tone of Alec Guinness‘s George Smiley voice, and how he never once allows himself to become irritated or annoyed or verbally imprecise, and how his careful manner gradually calms down Michael Lonsdale‘s Grigoriev. It’s very calming.
